You will meet for one hour weekly (for a minimum of 12 hours) with one or two other students to discuss how you can implement in your ministry the principles being explored in this course and to evaluate applications tried. In your dialogue sessions review key concepts from your reading and class notes. What in your experience affirms or brings into question these ideas? Which concepts: seem to hold the greatest potential? Challenge your current thinking? Are confusing to you? Seem unworkable? Could be applied in your current ministry? How will you adjust your ministry in the light of your learning? Even though I may not be able to apply the whole plan, what piece might I start with? What piece could be applied in a small church? Each week submit a card for your group indicating the meeting time, those present, and a brief outline of the topics discussed. At mid term and at the end of the semester each person will 5 5

7 submit a 1-2 page evaluation of the application dialogue experience. Report actions taken as a result of the dialogue sessions. The grade will be based on fulfilling meeting time requirements and the significance of the applications. Evaluations due March 29 and May 12. Christian Education Resource Research, File and Evaluation Spend a minimum of 15 hours identifying sources of Christian education resources, filing information gathered and evaluating curriculum. From publishers request catalogues and brochures, not samples. Set up a filing system for future use. File catalogues, brochures and other resource ideas. Evaluate one quarter s worth of comparable resources for one age group from two different publishers. Use the evaluation form provided by the professor. Write a 2 page summary of your evaluation and assessment of the materials. Submit your file, curriculum evaluations and a record of time invested. Grade will be based on fulfilling time requirements, the breadth of the findings, the organization of the file, and the pertinence of the evaluation. Materials are due, in M301, May 12. Pick them up from M301, May 20. Teaching Group Form a cooperative learning group of four students from the class. Each person will design and teach two thirty minute sessions implementing the Learning Styles teaching model and teaching principles presented in CE 501. The sessions a person teaches are to be for two different age groups, children, youth, or adult. Each group member will complete an evaluation of each teaching session (Forms available from the professor). Group members will provide each other with constructive feedback in a twenty-minute discussion period following each session taught. During the first week of class meet to organize and establish a schedule. The eight group teaching sessions should be scheduled between March 24 and May 12. Following each presentation to the group, turn in to the professor for grading, the session plans and materials developed by the presenter and used in teaching along with the evaluation sheets from each participant. The presenter will also complete an evaluation form on the experience. The grade will be based on the effective implementation of good teaching principles, the age appropriateness of content and approach, and faithful group participation. Interview, Observation and Report Invest a minimum of 12 hours interviewing professional and volunteer C.E. workers and observing C.E. ministries. Generate a list of questions to ask interviewees and to have in mind as you observe. The list may change as the semester progresses. Questions should allow for expanding your understanding of topics related to course content. Write a 5-6 page paper based on your interviews and observations, integrating your findings with course content. Discuss the insights you gained, their relationship to course content and implications for your future ministry. Append a list of the questions which guided your exploration, the names of persons interviewed and a statement of the time invested. 6 6
